Welcome to Kindergarten - Grade 5

Our educational experience for Kindergarten through Grade 5 emphasizes that our children and families are part of a larger multi-faceted world that can be supported and nurtured by Jewish values and experiences.  We believe that creating a strong partnership with parents is a key element that leads to an enriching experience for students and families and invite you to contact us at any time.

Taglit... Discover

Sundays, 9:30-11:30 a.m.

Centered around the opportunity for children to make choices in Jewish learning, Taglit classes delve deeply into subjects. Students are divided into two grade cohorts for classes in order to create the most meaningful learning environments. A variety of opportunities are available to students such as Torah study, movement and yoga, Youth Choir for grades 2-5, and a Boston Haifa connection. Children in kindergarten through grade 5 participate in Taglit in different ways based on their age.

This program is required for grades 3-5 and optional for grade 2.
